Linger a Little Longer


Last updated 1/24/2018 at 2:32pm

It is late, and the house is dark and quiet except for the soft music drifting from the other room. Today was a busy day. It started sweet with moments that can easily go by unnoticed, time with my husband and our little three-year old granddaughter. We joined into her imaginary games. I can honestly say, today was a day well lived.

I wish every day could be a day spent with the Lord, with family, helping a friend, praying for someone in need, doing ministry and moving forward in goals. Wouldn't that be great?

I sit back and listen to the music playing and I remember the beginning of the day. Before the granddaughter woke. Before the dogs needed attention.

It was just God and me quietly, communing in those moments before the house became alive. Some days that is all God requires of us.

He just wants us. He wants us to linger a little longer. Chat a little more.

Read His word aloud, letting Him hear His words on our lips.

We are in a relationship with Him. He wants our time and attention.

Take a moment, or two, relax at the Saviors feet.

Join Him and breathe in life with Christ. It is good. He is good.

Take all your worries, cares and concerns straight to Jesus. He is waiting for you to give them all to Him. 2 Peter 5:7 says it is so.

My advice. Rest a little longer. The world will still be outside the door. You will be stronger for having spent time with the Lord.

Be Blessed today.
